exploits arent balance discussions. cant discuss it, u can only cry. they are known to the designers. they are just tryin to keep the general public from knowin details, or keywords to search em.The post by stckrboy was responding to a post about the exploit, which they don't want people posting about because others will find out how to use it. The original post was from April, and I don't see why 343 would be reading the answers to the asked questions after so many months. There's no official balance thread, so I'm assuming that they want you to post here about it seeing as it asks for feedback. That said, they really need to clarify what "feedback on ranked seasons" even means. If they don't want discussion about balance here, they need to make that evident.Judging by this statement:I thought season feedback included feedback about balance? Judging from what everyone else is posting, it is.Because I'm giving feedback?Why are you posting this in the season's feedback thread?
I agree with you, but this isn't the right place for it.And this one from the original post:stckrboy wrote:If you're going to quote the post, please make sure and edit out the exploit details. I edited out your post for you.MO MO DAMONSTER wrote:
Let's get back on topic now, discussions and feedback on ranked seasons only pleaseEveryone posting about balance is off topic and making it really hard to find the actual feedback on ranked seasons.Quote:hey folks - As you know, we're nearing the end of the first season of ranked play in Halo Wars 2 (just waiting on that Colony DLC to drop!).The current plan of record is to kick off a new season with the release of each new leader since this new content shakes things up and will surely always include some amount of broader balance tweaks in parallel. This makes sense in theory.When a future DLC runs into delays, it starts to cause some challenges as the season lingers on indefinitely. Likewise, if a DLC is delayed but the following one isn't, we could have a situation where a season may only last 2 to 3 weeks. That doesn't seem too ideal.I'd love to hear you what you all think -
Bonus question: In your opinion, what's the ideal season length (regardless of the DLC/balance component)I've also gathered some feedback and have passed to the team regarding the number of placement matches required for a season. I've heard from quite a few folks who think it should be less than 10 games if a season is barely a month long.As the design team evaluates and reviews the season structure going forward I'd love to help round up your thoughts and feedback for their consideration. Thanks!
- Do you prefer to have season rollovers remain tied to DLC releases? (even if it means inconsistent / unpredictable durations)
- Or, would you rather just have seasons tied solely to a calendar cadence (similar to Halo 5), even though you'd have balance changes and new leader drops coming in the middle of an active season?
It isn't like 343 only reads this thread, there are devs reading the balance discussion thread as well. What is wrong with trying to stay organized?
I never said staying organized was a flaw, I just don't think balance discussion is out of place here.
